The following birds are available for sale at this time. They are priced so the average person can afford them. So don't pass up some good birds just because they're not priced at several hundred dollars each. If you're at the other end of the financial spectrum, you need to realize that these are pedigreed animals and not street pigeons. The day of the five-dollar pigeon is long gone. They are priced so I can receive some reasonable return on the investment I have made in feed, time caring for them, etc.

What is a pigeon really worth? The value of a pigeon depends on three factors, and you can read about them here.

You will find some rare-colored birds among those listed. It is important to remember that we are a FLYING loft, not a COLOR loft. Our rare colors are required to fly right with the other birds. We sell youngsters that we raise out of our flyers, but we will seldom sell the rare-colored flyers themselves because we will be using them later as breeders.

I am selling pigeons, not paper, but almost all of those listed below have extensive pedigrees. I will provide whatever pedigree information I have on each bird listed. Feel free to email me and request an electronic copy of the pedigree of any bird listed here.

PLEASE NOTE: The last few years have seen significant increases in postal rates. Therefore, if birds are to be shipped to you (shipping to destinations in the USA only), the shipping charge will be $55 for one or two birds, $75 for 3 or 4 birds, $100 for 5 or 6 birds, and $120 for 7 or 8 birds to cover the cost of postage and a special USPS-approved shipping box. (Larger boxes not only cost more, but they also mean even more weight, hence the jump in shipping costs as the number of birds increases.) More than 8 birds will require a second box.

Payment can be made via money order (I do not accept personal checks) or you can use Visa or Mastercard by clicking on the Paypal logo below. Paypal is preferred.

Special Offer #1 - Young bird flying kits.

Over the last two years I have invested in some additional breeding stock that I am convinced will enhance the quality of my flock significantly. Unfortunately, due to health issues that make it difficult to do the physical labor associated with the sport (catching birds, lifting full crates, etc.), I have decided not to race young birds this year. I will still be raising young, but will keep very few of them. Many will go out to futurity and auction races, but the bulk of them will be sold. Therefore I am now offering young bird flying kits at the very reasonable price of 8 for $250 with free shipping, or 12 for $375 also with free shipping.They will be my choice, but they will be the same birds I would normally fly myself. And, unlike many other sellers of flying kits, I will provide pedigrees just in case you choose to set some aside for future breeding. They will become available as they leave the nest. 50% non-refundable deposit will reserve them now.

Special Offer #2 - Top breeders from my breeding loft.

Over the last few years I have experienced some back and shoulder problems that make it necessary for me to reduce the size of my breeding flock even more. For that reason I will be offering some of my top quality breeders, both in standard and rare colors, as soon as they feed out their current round of youngsters. Even the rare colors have been upgraded to racing quality. We have never considered ourselves a "color loft". We are a flying loft that likes to breed an eye-appealing variety of colors. These mated pairs will be priced at $300-$600 a pair. Most pairs are blends of various families that have been mated for performance, with only a few being "pure" of a particular family. The two pair that are priced at $600 consist of hens that are AU Registered Champions that were bred and flown by John Beeson of Kansas. Several others are directly out of AU Registered Champions bred by top flyers here in the Midwest.

For serious inquiries only. Contact me via email and I will send you a list of what is available. (No whites available)
1.

Sire of a Race Winner! 2006 blue check Dworek cock, purchased from Barry Venn as a young bird. I know I am repeating myself, but the only reason he is available is due to a necessary downsizing of the breeding loft. Grandson of Dworek's foundation cock 609 on dam's side; g-grandson AND g-g-grandson of 609 on sire's side! Sire of AU 2011 WCOF 1561, a race winner at 125 miles. Low price on him due to his age, but as of this year he was filling every egg. Price: $75

2.

2013 blue bar hen, no. 3008, from the flying team. She has flown five races out to 180 miles, four of them as a young bird (our club flew just one OB race in 2014). Her sire is the famous "Wonder" family and was bred by Sonny McGowan of Pennsylvania. Her dam is a hen bred by Ron Pairan of Ohio. Both maternal grandparents are AU Registered Champions. Price: $75

3.

Son of one race winner and nephew of another race winner!

2013 blue check cock, no. 3051. Flew 5 races out to 180 miles. He is a mixture of several families, with established quality on both sides. Sire is unflown but a full brother to "Snake River", a 200-mile winner. "Snake River" is a beautiful "white lace" or "pearl" coloration, which is actually spread recessive opal. Dam is a true silver (diulte blue) bred by Sal Rodriguez of Utah. She was 1st club(254 birds) and 2nd concourse (500+ birds)at 162 miles. Remember, paper doesn't fly; pigeons do. This bird is fully pedigreed, but performance, not fancy names, is what matters. This is a performance pedigree all the way. Price: $100

4. Mated pair of 2013 blue bars. Cock, no. 4982, is a late hatch and therefore was unflown. Sire is out of "Heisenberg", my best old bird flyer over the last 10 years and the winner of 2 races and numerous other diplomas. Sire also raised a race winner himself. Dam is the mother of "Snake River", a white laced recessive opal cock that won a 200-mile race. So this cock is a half-brother to race winners and multiple diploma winners on both sides. He also carries recessive opal and is half Janssen and about 1/4 HVR. The hen of this pair, no. 4880, flew on the 2013 young bird team and flew 3 races of 100, 100, and 120. She was in the top 10% on the 120. She was removed from the flying team after an injury which resulted in her now being blind in one eye. She is also a grandchild of "Heisenberg" and on her father's side goes back to "Assured Gold" and "Granger's Diamond", and "Dark Vader" as well. Her dam is an AU Elite Champion that was bred and flown by John Beeson of Kansas. One of her maternal grandparents is an AU Elite Champion and the other is an AU Champion and 2nd Hall of Fame. Photo at right is of the cock to the pair. Price: $150 for the pair.
